Most people don’t think about the divorce process until they are considering a divorce themselves.
Information is a good thing to have when getting a divorce. Those who are planning on divorcing should learn as much as they can about the process so they can make informed decisions.
Here are three things divorcing parties should keep in mind:
- Alimony may be a factor: Alimony may be a factor in a divorce if one spouse has financial needs, if adultery occurred, if abuse occurred, and under other circumstances. In Louisiana, there are two types of alimony: Alimony that is pending during divorce proceedings (alimony pendent lite) and permanent alimony.
- Divorce can be hard on children: A child’s life can be turned upside down by divorce. Reactions of children may vary widely depending on the circumstances. Here are some things to keep in mind before you talk to your kids about your divorce.
- Mediation may be an option for some couples: Divorce litigation can be costly and time-consuming. For couples who are willing to work together to resolve their divorce-related issues, mediation is a viable option. Talk to an attorney to find out if this option is right for you.
Every divorce is different. If you are facing divorce, it is important to be informed and seek help from an experienced divorce attorney.
